The Register reports on progress toward a Linux Standards base. "It's a considerable achievement by the Free Standards Group not only to gather
an impressive buy-in from all the commercial distros and the big iron vendors, but
to provide standards that are both no-brainers to comply with and that have
obvious interoperability benefits. The Group published 1.1 of LSB - the Linux
Standards Base spec and the first version of the internationalization layer, Li18nux." More from NWfusion.com, and here's the press release.
